I have an old mink that I wear when walking up to the mailbox, sometimes over my nightgown. It seems perfectly appropriate to me when the wind is about 50 miles per hour out of the north and the temp is 20 degrees. Just to be coordinated I sometimes don a matching hat. I consider it an appropriate fashion statement. PETA people don't seem to live in the country.

I wasn't really serious, but I like it that she lied reflexively, then was cornered and forced to admit the truth. :-) I was amused.

I REALLY admire Hillary for....

for....

I'll think of something.

I actually do admire her husband for one thing, though. One of his last acts in office was the posthumous promotion of William Clark. It was high time that was done. Wish it had been done by someone who was fit to hold the office, but hey, it was one bright shining thing in the Clinton cesspit.

"Duffy made a coat for her but someone else paid for it."

There it is: that ring of truth that makes us believe the story.

Nah, temp was in the 20's. It's a mite nippish, but coats that button or zipper up the front are more practical. Anyway, the point was that floor length mink is for formal occasions. You can wear a tiara at Home Depot if you want, nobody is going to say anything to your face, but it's not appropriate for the situation.

But hey, it's a free country.

Hillay lies about...

"I was named after Sir Edmund Hilary"
Hillary Clinton to New Zealand audience.

Except she was born in 1948 years before Hilary climbed Mount Everest. You got it, she even lies about her name.

Graphic Image Hanging from I-90
If you were driving west on I-90 Saturday morning, you may have seen some graphic images hanging from an overpass.
People for the ethical treatment of animals, better known as P.E.T.A. gathered on the Cherry Street extension bridge early Saturday morning.
They displayed a huge banner over the highway, showing this graphic image of a skinned fox with the tagline "here`s the rest of your fur coat."
A P.E.T.A. spokesperson says they take these actions to educate the community about the cruel treatment of animals.
After about a half an hour, they were asked to leave by city police.

Senator Hillary Clinton may be in a hairy situation with animal rights groups.

Today's New York Post reports that a furrier claimed to have finished a mink coat for Clinton in December. The animal rights group PETA called Clinton's people who said that was totally false.

But the Post followed the mink-trail a little further and got the official word from Clinton's camp. The paper reported that the senator has actually owned a mink coat for 25 years.

But it was a little worn out, so she traded it in FOR A NEW ONE.

Oh to hell with the fur coat, what I want to see is that horrific picture of Hellary wearing that monster-sized triple (XXXL) Leather Coat being escorted down the steps by George and Laura as she and Billy Jeff leave the White House for the last time as Co-Presidents. You remember! The one where it looks like she weighs 600 LBS and the Jacket flashed open and it was filled with Silverware? That is a devastatingly brutal picture! I wonder how much she actually physically carried on her, walking out of the White House.I'm sure only the lord really knows.

Let me repeat: Hillary Clinton will run to the right of the Republican candidate in 2008, if that's what it takes to win the election.

Her fawning supporters will vote for her no matter what. She will be able to point to her fur coat and her "support" for the war in Iraq to demonstrate that she's not one of those left-wing whackos.

Sorry, Sean, but my heart is troubled.

Fear not, I won't :) But someone should ask her supporters why, if she'd lie about something as ticky-tack as this, they shouldn't wonder if she'd lie about other things of far more importance.

I'm sure the only minks used in the making of herself's coat were free-range minks. And she probably had the smaller ones tagged and thrown back. That's just the kind of girl she is.

This is about the first time I've ***ever*** admired Hillary for something--she overcame her reflexive lying and admitted she has a fur.

She certainly did not admit it.

Furthermore, she did not buy it. It says right there that someone else bought it. Further, it says an assistant purchased it. You can bet the Clintons did not pay the cash, so who is buying a sitting Senator mink coats on the hush hush?

And since I'm posting on this thread I'll just ask here what evidence there is that Chelsea is such an animal lover as asserted by the staffer? They just say something and think that makes it so. As far as I know there is zilch zero nada to indicate Ms. Clinton has any particular fondness for animals except supposedly being a vegetarian...which does not translate into animal lover.

And you're right about one thing--if the Clintons are asked to pay for something themselves, they're sure to run out on the check.

This is what made me think she'd come "clean" (haha):

After chasing the story all day, PAGE SIX got the official word from Clinton's camp: "The senator has owned a mink coat for 25 years, and because it was worn, she traded it in." So she's neither been to the store nor received a bill, but she did trade in her old mink for a new one. Why all the back and forth and changing stories? Only her furrier knows for sure.

I know....but you were being far too generous, I fear. I really and truly would like this looked into. Is it not the case that politicians have been found to be in violation of rules for accepting watches and the like? No way would the story about the trade-in (if we can even believe THAT after they offered up one lie after the other) result in an even exchange.

Miss Marple, I know it's caucus night so you're probably focused on that, but if you see this ping I think you'd find the latest shenanigans of great interest.

Wish we could still say that, but eventually she did get around to subcontracting to have the book written, so she satisfied the contract that made that "payment" not "gift."

"What a waste of fur"Too right.

In order to wear fur and not look like a small woodland animal yourself, you have to have height, be relatively slender and have good posture; e.g., think Ann Coulter ( I used to finance a furrier).Hillary has none of these and it will be very much like the "lipstick on a pig" situation.

As proof, does anyone have a picture of her at the Bush inauguration in her S.S. Sturmbahnfurer's leather coat with the fur collar (probably madeof human hair)?

'Nuff said.
